Alvvays - Next Of Kin lyrics

We walked along the rocks for nearly an hour I caught the way you looked at me in the sunlight You took something before you went in the shower You have suppressed that make you feel uptight If I had known you couldn't swim We would have never gone in I left my love in the river The only one who sees I lost his hand in the color It was the life I wanted and I hoped for And now I'm left sifting through the leaves His arms so hard, I saw his skin through this t-shirt They grabbed so tight, he knew they wouldn't defend We climbed into the stream so no one will be heard And in no time it wasn't a sound If I had known you couldn't swim We would have never gone in I left my love in the river The only one who sees I lost his hand in the color It was the life I wanted and I hoped for And now I'm left sifting through the leaves No color to his skin, I follow next of kin No color to his skin I left my love in the river The only one I see I lost his hand in the color And now I have grown through the trees
